The Journey to a better me, to a calmer and to a happier life has been taking place all year. From finances to beauty I am stepping it up a notch!
Due to these changes I am embarking on a 30 day Love my OWN hair journey.
A huge struggle for me is heat! I love a good blow out! Eliminating heat for a lot of ladies is something that comes easily. Although for me not too much. I struggle with what to do with my natural hair. I tend to get insecure about the way I look when my hair is in its natural state. I love my hair, yet I haven’t figured out how to wear it when is is in its natural, curly, puffy, frizzy state. So I am challenging myself to learn more about my hair to appreciate the texture I have and to love it just the way it grows.
Today is day one and honestly today was kind of a fail. I took my sew -in out last night. beautiful Hair from my online store prettyasporcelain.com. I deep conditioned my hair and it feels really really good and It feels really really soft.
Then I thought I could get fancy. I chose to do a twist out on my hair and if it did not dry all the way so it looks really messy. Even messed up my nails twisting my hair. Luckily I was prepared for it to be messed up. I’m a trial by error hairstylist. I pulled out a cute little head wrap and it saved the day. I like my little high puffball I have going on today.
I wish my twist out would have came out better here is a photo of day one after salvaging the twist out. I’m ok with it!
I used Cantu Moisturizing Curl Cream, Coconut oil and Eco Style styling gel for this twist out.
Hopefully day 2 will be better! We will see!
29 days to go of loving MY HAIR!!
Day 2 twist out. Turned out a little better but by the end of the day it was just a massive Puff. Luckily my friend who is a natural hair expert gave me a ton of advice and some product-recommendations.
She told me not to pull apart my twist too much so that my hair has room to untwist on its on and she also recommended using wrap lotion to help hold the twist!
That will be something to try for day 4 because I fell asleep before I could twist my hair. So we shall see!
it’s been a struggle! Trying to tame my hair. But I have to say I have gotten a ton of compliments. Which is nice but I’m running out of ideas
